Iowa Football: Have the Hawkeyes Lived Up to Expectations?

After five games, Iowa is 3-2, which isn't where Hawkeye fans hoped their team would be, but it's much better than where they were following the catastrophic loss to Central Michigan.

Coming into the year, it was evident that 2012 would be a rebuilding year.

Iowa had to replace almost its entire defensive line, the greatest wide receiver to ever wear the black and gold, its top rusher, three NFL-draft-worthy offensive linemen, a cornerback, linebacker and a punter.

In effect, expectations weren't high for the Hawks, though they weren't quite so low as to accept a loss to CMU.

That said, this article will only look at players that have seen meaningful minutes at their respective positions. It will then attempt to judge if those players have met expectations, given what was expected of them back in August.
